At Least There Was One Unexpected Sports Victory Today ;-) #skpoli @ryanmeili @premierbradwall

In my quest to bring you all the hardest hitting political news, I have to note the somewhat shocking development that Ryan Meili beat noted Sports Cage call-in regular, “Brad from Swift Current” in sending out a timely tweet about the Roughriders’ tough loss today. It took “Brad from Swift Current” TWELVE full minutes before […]

UFC 217 Might Be Best MMA PPV of All-Time?

I don’t pay a lot of attention to UFC for the most part unless it’s a big name or a big fight or when my love of pro wrestling intersects with the world of “real” fighting via someone like Brock Lesnar or CM Punk participating. And I rarely to never watch the live PPVs, usually […]

Pace is getting into skateboarding which means that I’m getting into skateboarding. 😉 But I came across this article and video recently and did want to share because it’s *very* cool – the guy who invented “the ollie” (flat ground version) on which most modern skateboarding tricks are based who is now 49 years old […]

One Legged Former Wrestler, Zach Gowen, Kicks Ass on American Ninja Warrior

I remember watching Zach Gowen during his run in the WWE and being as impressed with his mental approach to life as his physical approach. He’s no longer in the WWE but he’s still showing how he can overcome obstacles using a combination of physical and mental toughness. Pretty amazing!
